I am looking to start diversifying as I have always wanted to start an online store. The thing is, I do not know if I want to actually drop ship, or have my garage as a fulfillment center. Right now, I am doing fulfillment for my good friend who is running an actual store online for phone car mounts, and knock on wood, it is fairly successful. I want to do this but I want to run the whole store, just do not know where to get started. I would look at YouTube videos but do you think drop shipping is considered over saturated right now? Or do you think it has died down a bit?
For the store, I know how to entire shipping process works. My thing is if im going to sell a product, I do not mind filling the orders, as I would also want to make an actual brand out of the product I am selling, with custom packaging, etc.
Where should I start? What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance!
